The Comment Awards Are Meeting Their Girlfriends On Lex

Hello! Did you know that yesterday was #LoveYourPetsDay? In honor of such a momentous occasion, may I present: Daniel Tiger (Danny) as a puppy in 1996, and Cyrus (who is curled up next to me at this very moment) as a puppy in 2007! If you want, please please please tell me about your pets in the comments!

12 year-old Queer Girl holding an enormous fluffy gray puppy    Queer Girl's current dog Cyrus, as a puppy. Floppy ears and starry eyes!

This week, Saturday Morning Cartoons has a brand-new regular comic, The Lakeview Crew!

Shelli Nicole’s bringing back What I Wore and I am VERY excited.

Everything about this is perfect: Let Us Consider St. Gertrude, the Cat Lady Alternative to St. Patrick.

And speaking of perfect, will you LOOK at these PHOTOS of my very own editor, Vanessa, as she helps Molly illustrate some tips and tricks for hazy, romantic, slightly surreal photographs?!! (Cherry chapstick has been entirely vindicated.)

Read! These! Eight! Black! LGBTQ! Poets! 

Jenn wrote about Greta Garbo, Jenny Lewis, and the nature of icons.

So: After reading Natalie’s recap and watching portions of this week’s debate, I’m fairly certain Elizabeth Warren’s performance was the actual embodiment of the moment in Ghostbusters when Holltzmann licks her gun and then deflates all of the ghosts haunting New York?

And then there were your comments!

The Second Act Award to stef:

Well, wow. This gives me a lot to think about, as someone else who couldn’t envision life past my 20s. Here I am in my 30s feeling like I’m on life number two. I’m really trying to go all out living in my truth this time around. Constantly feels precarious, but in a good way.

  1. QG I DO love my pet how’d you know

    her name is Sharktopus she’s a six month old blue and cream tortie kitten who is the embodiment of chaos. at any given moment I’m two seconds from starting her her own instagram

  2. I’m going to focus my attention on picturing Holland Taylor voting for Elisabeth Warren for president.🤞

  3. QG What cute little (!) puppers ! Daniel Tiger OMG. What was he like full-grown Eeeeee !

    Cyrus has the kind of face I’d love to wake up to every morning. Although Gertrude is my patron saint, I must say this is almost turning me into a dog-person.
